Hi, I've been trying to figure this out for a few days now, and can't
seem to get it to work. I want to pin not based on [stable, testing,
unstable], but based on distribution release, in my case, [woody,
I want to have a mainly potato system, with select packages from
woody. I have the main, contrib, and non-free sections for both in
sources.list. This is an exerpt from the man page I thought was
"If the first character of the specification is a digit then it is
considered to be a release version match, otherwise a release label
match. Specifications which contain equals are full release data
matches and are a comma seperated list of one letter keys followed by
an equals then by the string."
I thought this was telling me I could do something like this:
Pin: release potato
Pin: release woody
This however didn't change anything, it still wanted to take all the
woody versions of packages, the same as before the preferences file
I also tried pinning this way, as also described in the man page:
Pin: release v=2.2*
Pin: release v=3.0*
This also didn't work, as described above. I also tried other ways,
but these two I though would be correct.
I assume this sort of thing is possible, what am I doing wrong?
